TechnipFMC awarded contract for India’s largest Hydrogen Generation Unit by Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd
New Delhi, July 20, 2018— TechnipFMC (NYSE:FTI) (Paris:FTI) has been awarded a substantial contract by the state-owned Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd. (HPCL) for a grassroot Hydrogen Generation Unit (HGU). The project is part of the brownfield expansion for HPCL’s Visakh Refinery Modernization Project located in Visakhapatnam, in the state of Andhra Pradesh in India.
The contract covers project management, technology licensing, preparation of basic design and engineering package, as well as detailed engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning, and performance guarantee test run on an LEPCC* basis.
This HGU is being installed to cater to the needs of HPCL Visakh refinery to enhance its refining capacity from 8.33 MMTPA** to 15 MMTPA. TechnipFMC’s scope includes an HGU comprising two trains with a design capacity of 113 KTPA*** each and a Pressure Swing Adsorption Unit of 36 KTPA hydrogen production.
TechnipFMC advanced the application of its proprietary steam reforming technology beyond the conventional fired reformer by adding its TechnipFMC Parallel Reformer (TPR®), a convective, high temperature heat exchange reformer. This combination reduces overall firing demand by taking high temperature heat from the effluent of the conventional reformer to supply heat needed for the TPR. In addition, the design includes a power generation unit that utilizes excess steam, making the plant electrically self-sufficient.
NelloUccelletti, President of the Onshore/Offshore business at TechnipFMC, commented: “Our proprietary steam reforming and TPR technologies were key differentiators in this award. By maximizing energy efficiency, lowering feed consumption, reducing power import and minimizing emissions, these technologies will enable us to provide HPCL with a self-sufficient HGU which is one of a kind in the industry.”
TechnipFMC previously executed two HGUs for HPCL and has a strong presence in India. The company is a global leader in the design and supply of hydrogen plants, with more than 270 built worldwide.
